Favorite Quote:
"All I know is that I know nothing"


I traipse
through the unrelenting minefield,
disabling mines in an instant;
I deliver a small blue thumbs-up.

But:
every disarmament,
every thumbs-up,
every engagement
pours hot black oil into the fire;
more mines
multiply left and right, up      and     down.

I tear my eyes
away – I wrestle with
my inner narcissist,
my confrontational warrior – sighing,
I retreat.

My thumb brushes over
the nearly-imperceptible indent
and – suddenly – I am granted exit,
no –  release, from Facebook:
to sleep.
